It is very much UNIX-like and Java usually returns proper file attributes when asked. The File object behaves properly [just verified it, with this JVM] at least for canRead(),canWrite(),canExecute() and matches 'ls -l' exactly for the user, but as this is Java 6, there is no standard group/other permission API. I figured this should use FS_POSIX_java (eventually), but"NONSTOP_KERNEL" is not known to JGit. Can you point me to the class where stuff is get/set in JGit?
